of dictators, there was a visit to kim jong-un this week, dennis rodman, former nba star went over there in what turned into a pr blunder, i guess you can say. he was there with the harlem globetrotters among a few other people, part of cultural exchange with north korea. the h.b.o. program "vice" was there to document it all and we'll see more. rodman called kim jong-un an awesome guy and praised his father and grandfather the dictators of north korea and george stephanopoulos had this to say on his return. you called them great leaders, do you believe that? >> what i saw in that country, i saw in that country, i saw people respect him, and his family. that's what i mean by great leaders. >> aren't they forced to? >> huh? >> aren't they forced to. i say no, because i think he's -- this is a different view 'cause i sat with him for two days and one thing he asked me if obama say and do one thing. he want obama to do one thing, call him. >> jon: so why the at all, rich. >> captivating tvment i don't think anyone could take their eye off the train wreck and dennis rodman, a useful i
about bellicosity. kim jong un is really, i mean, quite beside himself, threatening nuclear devastation, visiting it upon the united states. your thoughts about how the united states should react. >> yeah. lou: white house has already said, no, we'll handle your nuclear threat, thank you very much. >> that doesn't make me feel reassured. well, if you go ahead -- a, you're going to have nuclear weapons, b, you might launch them at us, but don't worry, we'll take care of them. we would be laughing at these guys between dennis rodman and the music video, but the fact is he's getting his hands on nuclear weapons, and there'll be proliferation in south korea and japan. you'll see more nukes in the region. in five years we could have five more nuclear power. lou: and, ambassador, 30,000 of our troops on the dmz in south korea. isn't it about time that we remove those troops? because they are clearly in harm's way and would amount to very little in the way of resistance should he send forces over that line or missiles or rockets. >> well, the plan is to bring the troops back away from the dmz
jong-un, anyone is thinking, you chave to assume that perhaps north korea does have something up its sleeve. >> i know you have, of course, been to the dmz which was created by the cease fire. i went about a year ago when president obama was visiting and it was sort of -- it's almost, i would say, incomprehensible to imagine that this sort of what has governed the creation of this demilitarized zone could sort of vanish in a way. what is the response, anna, from washington and seoul to these latest threats? >> yeah. just on the dmz, brianna. you are talking about a strip of land some 250 kilometers long and 50 kilometers wide. north and south korea take up 50 kilometers each. you stand there literally there are north korean troops looking back at you. the north korean military has something like 1.2 million soldiers. what is their downfall is their navy and their air force. you speak to the experts, brianna, and they would say that north korea would be committing suicide by launching an attack on south korea because, as we know, south korea is very much protected by the united states
of north korea, kim jong-un, if you're watching this, that doesn't get our attention, threatening us. you have to do something to makes us focus on you like date a kardashian or punch justin bieber. that will get a lot of attention. we follow pop culture more than this stuff. nobody feels north korea is a threat. it's really an empty threat to us. at the same time, the u.n. is considering more sanctions, just voted for more sanctions and he's threatening us to show he's a responsible leader. he's not. i don't think anyone's paying attention. that's the reality. >> did i just see a kardashian -- >> date a kardashian. >> talking about pop culture, i think one of the most interesting pop culture stories this week and the biggest was my friend and yours joy behar leaving "the view." she's been there since the beginning, 16 years. that's one of the biggest jobses in show business in talk and she's deciding to leave. and she's a comedienne and probably is going back to do just that. >> i got on "the view" twice. it was because of joy. she saw he perform in a new york comedy club. i think she's

down north korea and 3 and say what are you doing? -- and say, what are you doing? is kim jong un committed to denuclearization? and determine if there is any viability to go back to the joint statement. that is a process and that is a meaningful one and my last comment is, i was one of the few in 2012 who was optimistic. i saw some personnel moves being made by kim jong un. he replaced his ministry of defense and replaced his chief of staff. he put people in there, the party officer who is overseeing the military general. he put his uncle into a high position where he treated -- there was some momentum and that fell apart. because of the process. they just launched an they tested and that has come to this position where we're at. a very dangerous stalemate. the chinese now can move this process forward. get them to the table and get some momentum going rather than continued escalation and potential for confrontation. >> thank you. ambassador joseph. would you put your microphone on, please? >> thank you for the invitation to be here and to testify. i will try to be very brief. wh
